. leading off tonight, japanese meltdown. the country of japan is confronting a grim reality three days after the massive earthquake and tsunami. thousands of bodies are washing up on the shore and the death toll is likely to go over 10,000 dead. and for many who survived the catastrophe, there's no power, no running water, and very little food. the disaster in japan is threefold. humanitarian and economic, but also nuclear. after several explosions at a nuclear reactor increased the threat of meltdown. we'll get the latest from the earthquake zone at the top of the show. plus, the nuclear crisis. can meltdown be avoided? what meltdown fears in japan mean for nuclear energy here in america. and later, the relief effort, overwhelming in a country that hasn't seen this level of hardship since world war ii. we begin with alex thompson of britain's channel 4. he joins us from sendai, japan. alex, tell us what you've seen over there. it's quite dramatic. >> reporter: i've covered disasters around the world and wars for 22 years. i've never seen anything quite on the scale of this. let me giv

an earthquake and tsunami slammed japan and we're still getting new video from the day of the disaster. a man if you check this out was driving along the coastal highway last friday when the tsunami jumped the sea wall, swamped his car. his car floated in to a parking lot, but he managed z to get to safety. >>> japan's nuclear agency today raised the fukushima disaster to crisis level five on a one to seven scale. this puts it on par with the three mile island nuclear accident back in 1979. but it is still below the chernobyl disaster which topped the scale at level seven. >>> crews are using helicopters, fire trucks to pour tons of water on the nuclear plant for a second day now. while they try to cool the plant, electricians are trying to hook up a new mile long power line to bring the cooling systems for two reek reactors back on line. >>> people who fled the coast are beginning to trickle back. you can imagine when they see what is left of their homes. >> translator: i have no words to express my feelings. i lost my mind. we will have to start from zero. >> here is a look at what's ahead
